It is amazing how this book received that kind of rating when this for me was utter waste of money and time.
I still could not forget her as the "lunatic" together with the dancing queen who voted against the opening of the second envelope. At that time I was hoping she'd change her mind and finish, once-and-for-all, the issue as the evidence was supposedly contained in that damn envelope! But she side It is amazing how this book received that kind of rating when this for me was utter waste of money and time. And YES, I still voted for her last Senate Election because her "lunacy" is just a tendency and I was pretty sure she was capable of correcting her actions.
Amazingly enough, she was a very important personality in the impeachment of Corona and was responsible for putting Enrile into jail for plunder. And YES I laughed at her pick up lines when it was aired in the television, but to see it here in this book- it was not as funny anymore.
If there was only a way to conduct a referendum or a plebiscite election to let her [Santiago] stay in the Senate forever. Count my vote in. These are her other works that have been listed at wikipedia: Constitutional Law, Volume 1 --Political Structure.

Whoever got the idea of publishing her pickup lines already heard on TV was really taking advantage of her popularity and was hoping to get more money out of it. Again, this was a total waste of money and time. Go watch her on TV on their live coverage during a State hearing.
She can be brutal, funny, straight-forward, honest, intelligent, amazing pass me the fucking thesaurus please.. I must say Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago is indeed one of the most admirable senator in the Philippines. I just love how brave and brutally honest she is as she talks about politicians and how they run the government.
Corruption She is definitely the "No guts, No Glory" type of woman. She's an intelligent, fierce and badass senator. I have so much respect for her. I'm so glad I've read this book. My favorite line: You're the reason God created the middle finger.
View all 7 comments. That first chapter? It so depicts our never ending battle with issues regarding politicians and politics itself. My gosh i felt blood oozing from my nose and in everywhere. I was enjoying and laughing while reading this on a public transportation on the way to the office. People might think I was crazy laughing all by myself. Pick-up lines was harsh but funny and true. The book itself? Informative, Funny and Badass. I l "You're the reason God created the middle finger.
I love her speeches. High level thinking required at some pages but definitely worth reading. This lady is very very intelligent, has so much guts and wit. I have so much respect for her, for her ideas and beliefs. I wonder what would our Government be like if she really was put as the President of the Republic of the Philippines. As they say She won in the voting but lost in the counting.

Inutos sa kanya ng Diyos: Pagkatapos ng anim na buwan, uulan at babaha ng apatnapung araw at gugunawin ko ang mundo. Nakita niya na walang arko si Noah. Sabi ni Noah, "Pasensya na Lord.

I must say that this book is not for the masses, let alone the 'intellectually deprived'. There are parts that require high level of understanding, though it appears to be a simple book. I found some parts boring or corny, which is forgivable since we know that the author is a total geek.
However, all in all, this book is an interesting read. There are many life and political lessons incorporated in it. It is also easy to digest that I finished it in two hours. Dec 21, Jasmine rated it it was amazing Shelves: Stupid is Forever by Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago is a compilation of her speeches, jokes, pick-up lines delivered or curated by this very famous Filipino public figure.
It may seem so funny but such hilarity really makes a lot sense. It is very small book which can be read for about hours straight. And mind you when you will read it in a public place, you can never stop yourself from laughing from one of those lines.
Putting out that kind of expression will leave a mark from those people around you; wondering about what you are reading, and which will also spark an interest from them on how good that book truly is. Well to be honest, I may seem to be a wide reader, but I rarely got the chance to actually read Filipino books.
So when I saw this book of Sen. I was so intrigued by this girl, asking for her reservations of 5 copies! Another 10 copies! And with only one copy left, luckily I got one! So while reading this, I tend to find this book not just a funny one, but also an eye opener about the reality and ugliness of how politics is being run in the Philippines.
And what also fascinated me is that, Sen. She was not giving names, but based from her descriptions, it did give us an idea who they really are. It is also the perfect book to read by our Filipino readers. Especially now that the Presidential Election is on its way. It is something that would really give us a whole new perspective as to why we should vote as wisely as we can.
You may think that this book is more likely a publicity. Especially when the Senator herself is very open about her Presidential Candidacy; but as reader of this book. The May election is now on its way. So a little reminder to each and every one of us Filipinos. Think wisely before you vote a particular candidate to be one of the next leaders of our country. For one vote can really make a lot of difference.
And to wrap it up, here are my favorite lines from the book, 1. Most people live and learn. Politicians just live. In any Congress, out of people, 2 are honest and intelligent, 10 are criminals, and 88 are good for nothing. The Napoles scandal showed that some politicians are the same all over the country.
They promise to build bridges where there are no rivers. Nothing matters more to the future of this nation than to ensure that our young women and men learn to believe in themselves and to believe in their dreams. My generation has all that it has — not only its love, but also its hope and faith — in your generation.
You — the youth who will determine the future of the Philippines — should not only get involved, but also each one of you should be a leader. Leaders are not born; it takes practice to develop the qualities of a leader.
A true teacher does not terrorize ignorant students, because a true teacher knows that it is his job to cure ignorance. All professionals in our country need to pass a government exam. Only a politician does not need any kind of preparation to practice. The purpose of a teacher it to teach, not teaching to flunk a class. The paradigmatic teacher is one who inspires you to read on your own. Mar 23, LailaBC rated it liked it Shelves: Would you believe I am more amazed by her resume written at the last part of the book.
She is such an accomplished person I am in awe of her. I have seen her in person many years ago when I was in college and she visited the university where I studied then and she was and till now very popular among the students. As the years went by since then she has become more fiercer than ever in politics. And it doesn't hurt she has such a sharp wit and sarcastic sense of humor. Some of the jokes written Would you believe I am more amazed by her resume written at the last part of the book.
Some of the jokes written in the book especially about crushes and love were pretty much corny so corny that i can't help but laugh out loud reading it. Then there were some speeches she wrote as speaker for some prominent universities. And some jokes that hit on about her political enemies, such guts!
And she has the integrity to back it up. I would have loved to have seen some video when she actually delivered some of these hilarious lines.. Over all it was a fast,fun and enjoyable read: A very surprising book. I just bought this book out of curiosity and the title is so catchy then I ended up liking it.
I like the book. I was nodding and agreeing most of the time I was reading it. I read it and I realized my vocabulary skill is a no match to hers. Haha Everyone should read this book, it was a fun and fast read.

Moreover, It may seem so funny but such hilarity really makes a lot sense. It is a very small book which can be read for about hours straight.
Santiago is definitely not afraid to Good book but not as i expect. With her wisdom and wit, she was able to win the hearts of everyone, especially the youth. We were all in awe on how she can bravely fight corrupt officials, and still finding a way to keep things light with her humor. Aside from the good laugh, some pressing issues about our politics, economy, and education landscape were also discussed.
But you have to read between the lines for it. Before i read this,i'm expecting a lot about her book,good thing i didn't buy,i just borrowed. Feb 22, bea rated it really liked it Shelves: Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago is truly one of the most and very rare admirable politicians in the Philippines.
Not only does she have very impressive, mind-blowing accomplishments, she is also incredibly funny, and this book is a testament to her abundant wit. Brutally honest, unafraid to voice her opinions, willing to defend her principles to the very ends of the earth, she serves as an inspiration not only to aspiring lawyers like me, but to all the women of Asia.
This book is a collectio Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago is truly one of the most and very rare admirable politicians in the Philippines.
This book is a collection of jokes, banats and comebacks, and speeches that are perfect for reading aloud to your friends and family. Personally, I admit I had to reread a few of them twice because some concepts or terms were a little unfamiliar to a teenager like me. Although funny and hilariously quite patama to many public figures in the country , her one-liners will have you not only lol-ing but will have you nodding in agreement or leave you deep in contemplation.
A lot of her lines are actual eye-openers to the controversial ways of our government. This in particular is what makes me admire this book so much.
Also filled with wonderful illustrations and caricatures from some of the best young illustrators in the Philippines, this is a must read, not only to my fellow Pinoys but to everyone who needs a bit of cheering up on a bad day.
Grab a copy! Dec 03, Christian rated it really liked it Shelves: It's funny when you read it, but it's funnier when you just try and imagine her voice while you're reading it. The wits and wisdom of the late it pains me a great deal to say it senator is truly a gift to the country if not to the world. Her insights and humor-induced pick-up lines about politics, marriage, and life is very entertaining and thought-provoking a few albeit sometimes already being familiar from collective memory.
But still, the words that fill these pages are worth every sing It's funny when you read it, but it's funnier when you just try and imagine her voice while you're reading it. But still, the words that fill these pages are worth every single peso and minute of your time. Sen Miriam left the pieces and remnants of her soul and mind to the Filipino people, and I am in constant wonder about what we did to deserve a hero like her.
Feb 17, Mark O. Maikli lang tong libro, pero pinutol ko yung pagbabasa kasi napagod ako sa bandang gitna. Hindi dahil sa mahirap intindihin yung mga salita, kundi sa paghahanap ng dahilan para ituloy ko pa. Pero tinuloy ko padin. Kahit papano interesting naman sya, matalino at maganda ang mga excerpts ng mga speeches nya.

I admire Miriam for being witty, funny, and classy. But I think the book was just overrated. The spice of life is to befriend. The beauty of life is to give. Now I understand. The beloved senator has not been in the press for a few months as though she had faded into the night like Batman , nor has she been able to attend the senate sessions despite the fact that she has the highest number of bills passed in the higher congress.
She must still be struggling with her stage- 4 lung cancer as she is dog-determined to recover, for she might plan to run in Get well soon, our beloved Senadora. We, your fans , miss you a whole lot.
